Access-Ability Inspectors is a training course involving a group with 38 participants with mixed abilities from 8 countries. The training course activity took place in Jurmala, Latvia, in March 2017. The training course equipped youth workers with a set of skills, methods and activities on working with mixed abilities groups. Accessibility is the fundamental component of equality in societies. It is about giving equal access to everyone. Having inclusive international youth activities means that youngsters with different abilities would come together and are being offered with the same opportunities to participate. But working with mixed abilities groups is always a challenge for youth workers who have neither the expertise nor the chance to get their skills and competencies improved when it comes to mixed abilities groups in international events. Access-Ability Inspectors offered the opportunity to explore all these aspects as well as to pilot an innovative set of methodologies when working with a mixed abilities group.
It’s always better, when we are together!
